  • Re: Explanation of Linked Relationships

    Can someone please explain, what this means:-
    Family Finder - Linked Relationships

    Match DateLinked RelationshipFirst Previous 1
    User Image
    1st Cousin First Previous 1

    Is this an example or does it specifically refer to me? If so, where has it come from?

    Have you uploaded a tree, or created one for your "myFamilyTree" ? If so, and if you linked this match to someone in your tree, it would show the "Linked Relationship." If not, I don't know the answer.

    Before the last update to the family trees at FTDNA, you could set the relationship for a match in your list yourself (although the match would have to confirm it). This is no longer possible, because (as described above) you must now have a tree at FTDNA, and link a tested person to their position in the tree, in order to see the Linked Relationship.

    The FTDNA Learning Center has a page explaining the "Family Finder - Linked Relationships Page," but some of the images there are broken. This "Linked Relationship Page" can be reached from your dashboard, as a choice in the Family Finder section.
